S.A.M. #49: Scary Monster

This photograph looks like a shot from a sci-fi movie:

Just a few seconds - and the aircraft will change its shape to emerge as a giant robot... But what we see is a bomber, not a transformer.

First flown in prototype form in mid-1930, the Handley-Page HP.50 Heyford was the last of the RAF's long-range biplane night bombers. It was powered in…

Lord K's Garage #142: La Petite Rosalie

The one and only endurance record-breaker, built by Citroën.

These days, with rigorous prototype testing and computer-aided manufacturing, we take our cars’ reliability for granted. Carmakers have every confidence their products will last.

It was very different in the early 1930s, when human error meant that few cars — and roads — could be entirely depended upon. In…

Long time no see, comrades! So,brace yourselves for a fresh portion of morbid projects of soviet citizens!

Diesel City

I'm happy and proud to announce that a big, large book of texts and illustrations has just been published. It's titled, well... DIESEL CITY. The book has been in the making for quite a while and, apart from the pleasure of seeing it complete now, the main reason why I'm so happy and proud about it is that DIESEL CITY, right from the beginning and all the way till its completion, has been very much a "Dieselpunk family affair".

1938 Lincoln Greyhound mascot

That's exactly what Edsel Ford did with the Lincoln K, company's flagship and status symbol. Introduced in 1931, it was aimed at the highest price segment. The original Model K had a 145 in (3683 mm) wheelbase. Available as a dual cowl model, factory bodies were…
